Pelosi says she is assured the problems will be fixed by the end of November and that no extension or delay of the program should be granted. She also talks about the way forward with the budget, insisting that the Democrats are ready to negotiate, but that entitlements will not go away. The Democrats have three goals, she says: Get rid of sequestration, promote growth, and bring in revenue.
